Uganda Coffee Wins Africa Award

CoffeeThe Africa Farmer Organisation of the Year Awards (FOYA) announced last week in Accra, Ghana that the National Union of Coffee Agribusinesses and Farm Enterprises (NUCAFE) is the continent’s best in Income Diversity.

The local body beat three other organisations because of the benefits of bringing smallholder farmers together, nurturing them into practicing farming as enterprises and helping them to leverage on the Farmer Ownership Model (FOM).

During a press briefing in Kampala last week, NUCAFE chairman Gerald Ssendawula said FOM is based on the farmer group-association framework with the objective of supporting coffee farmers to organise themselves to assume as many roles as possible and be masters of their own destiny along the coffee value chain.
